More about the HTC Smart
There are some phones which are not that easy to categorize, and the HTC Smart is just one of them. Aiming to attract attention with the new Brew mobile platform and solid build quality, it is HTC's first foray into the feature phone universe. However, the HTC Smart seems to be keeping the popular Sense UI, so the user experience should still be HTC-like.
We have to give it to HTC, they surely know how to make touchscreen phones. For one of the pioneers in the industry it wouldn't be very hard to make a solid handset and the HTC Smart exhibits the build quality we've come to expect from the company, despite the fact that it is an entry level phone. The specs are pretty ordinary, though - the screen is 2.8" resistive type with a plain QVGA resolution, and not very responsive to the touch. It is probably the most basic screen you can find on a touchscreen device these days. Colors are by no means saturated, but at least the panel doesn't smudge quickly like some others do, and is bright and fairly visible in direct sunlight.
The HTC Smart feels sturdy and heavy when gripped, with a quality soft-touch coating on the back, usually reserved for higher-end phones. When you add the stainless steel elements like the buttons, the rims surrounding the phone and the display area, plus the brushed metal plate around the 3MP camera, it all amounts up to quality.
A nice chrome band runs around the phone. Even the volume piece on the left, and the camera button at the lower right side, are part of it, but a bit elevated, so you can feel where they are without looking. The only elements that pierce the metal band's streamlined look, are the miniUSB port at the bottom for charging and syncing, and the 3.5mm audio jack on top, but they have chrome all around them too.
The more you use the HTC Smart, the more small touches you will find – each one elevating your phone experience. For example, with just one tap you can turn your web browser to landscape mode so you can get a better view while surfing the internet. There is also smart zoom, which enlarges and reflows the text for your reading pleasure with just a double tap on the screen.
